... is proportional to the product of the mass into the square of the velocity. Double your mass, other things being equal, and you double your amount of heat ; double your velocity, other things remaining equal, and you quadruple your amount of heat....

...a greater distance ? A. A greater fall gives to the ball a greater velocity, and the heat produced, **like the mechanical effect, is proportional to the product of the mass** of the body into the square of its velocity. With three times the velocity, nine times the heat would... | |
